Hi all,

I'm looking for online resources of fonts for download.
Ideally, I'd like to find a comprehensive site with all possible alphabets/charsets listed.

This is what I've found so far:

I'm also curious to hear your view about the commercial usage of fonts.
If I'm a direct supplier to the end client, can I download any font on these sites and provide it to the end client (together with my translation)?
If a website tells me that the font is freeware/open source, how do I know whether I can trust it? Potentially, anyone can make "stolen" fonts available and label them as free.

I know that most people don't care about the legality anyway, but assume I'd wanted to be 100% sure to be legit...

Thanks a lot for any input!

You should download the new Gentium font, created and published by the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL:

It is Unicode and also has phonetic symbols. It is a truly great font for scholars all around the world—and not only for them. Give it a try.

Often licence stipulations come packaged with the font if they are not entirely free.
